Poe Valley State Park is a 620acre Pennsylvania state park in Penn Township, Centre County, Pennsylvania in the United States. The park is surrounded by Bald Eagle State Forest. Poe Paddy State Park is to the east. The forests of the park surround the 25acre Poe Lake. Poe Valley State Park is in isolated Poe Valley which lies between Potters Mills on U.S. Route 322 and Millheim on Pennsylvania Route 45. The park was closed during the 2008 and 2009 season while the lake was drained for dam repairs and the park facilities were upgraded.HistoryPoe Valley State Park and nearby Poe Paddy State Park were built by the Civilian Conservation Corps during the Great Depression of the 1930s. The young men of the CCC also worked to clear the regrowing forests of brush to prevent forest fires. They constructed roads throughout the forests, built state park facilities, constructed bridges on the state roads, planted trees for reforestation, and cleaned streams.

  • Been going here my whole life... absolutely love it!!! Leaving Monday for a week trip here!
  • Not as primitive as Poe Paddy. Shower houses and flushing toilets!
  • Love going here. Plenty of shade, clean beach. Kids have fun.
  • Love that pennscreek cought a lot of big trout out of it. Had some of the best times of my life growing up their. I need to go back very soon.
  • Lake and beach are nice. Campsites are a little too packed in for me but still a fun place to camp.
